If you are taking your first tentative steps into the minefield that is ‘natural wine’, then here’s a wine that will clear a path for you. Just don’t stray too far from the path. This is a ‘skin contact’ white wine, so the skins of the grapes are kept in contact with the fermenting juice for much longer than is normal for a white wine and it creates a deeper-coloured, slightly tannic white wine or ‘orange wine’ as they are sometimes called, even though the colour is more silvery yellow than beauty salon orange. The aromas and flavours are more floral, herbal and mineral and less ‘fruity’ than conventional white wines, but there’s enough flesh on this wine’s bones (hints of apricot and preserved lemons) to stop it short of the really hardcore natural wines, like that one over there, no, wait, don’t go over there! Boom! Well, we did warn you.
